NCS for ISS/FM leo sat's

Having a NCS for the ISS repeater or a FM satellite.

What a stupid idea, you say you want hams to give up the idea of grid square
chasing or looking for that state they need for WAS, or just the simple idea
of saying hi to a friend.

we went thru all this when AO-51 first went active everyone said they could
not work it and gave up and was mad at everyone that could.

It sure gets old hearing the same crap,"it's the big gun's fault that I can't
work it" well no its not. one, the rcv antenna may be blocked by the ISS or to
more than likely thier uplink freq is not tuned right for the doppler shift.
or three thier timing sucks. if conditions are right you can work it with a
arrow antenna and a ht and sound like you are running a 100watts even if there
is 20 other stations fighting for a shoot.

help lighten the load on the ISS/LEO's and help fund the EAGLE project.
